Antonia

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2014 following a relatively short diagnosis period (9 months). Sharing my story and experiences with others through the Endometriosis UK Online Community and the Helpline was immensely helpful and reassuring.  Knowing how valuable this support was prompted me to get more involved by becoming a support group leader.

About the support group:

Who are the meetings for? 

The support group provides a safe, supportive and friendly environment for sharing your experiences. It offers the opportunity to be listened to and understood, and know that you are not alone.  There is a mixture of informal meetings and talks from guest speakers who offer additional information on topics that are of interest to the group.   Let me know if there is anything that you are expecially interested in and hopefully it can be added to the list of events.

We also go walking once a month, as part of looking after ourselves (fresh air, sunshine and coffee and cake!). This is organised by one of the group members, and the places we visit are all local and easily accessible.  

The group hopes to promote greater awareness of endometriosis and do some fundraising.  If this is something you would like to get involved in let me know.  

Whether you are recently diagnosed or have lived with the condition for years you are very welcome to come along for a cuppa!

General Session Information:

Regular meetings are held at Parkway Buildings, just south of the city centre. There is free car parking at the front of the Parkway 3 building and tea and coffee are available. Dates for these meetings will be posted soon.

Please note: if you have not heard back from the support group since sending your enquiry and are interested in an upcoming meeting, do feel free to come along!
